England are full of power in there front 3 where as NZ have a rather weak Tighthead in Tialata, therefor England get my vote.

England have 3 of the top 5 props in Union. Stevens, Vickery and Sheridan. Hayman and Woodcock would finish the 5. If Hayman gets back in black it would be NZ for sure.

The idea that England have an amazing front row is an absolute myth these days

There seems to be a lot of bias posters on here, C'mon Tialata has nothing on Vickery!

yes, tialata is a weak point in the front row - but overall they're still stronger

Im going to say England, Vickery & Sheridan are good players. Thompson would have fit well in that team.

That may be the case, but if you take the commonly held view that the effectiveness of a scrum is determined by the effectiveness of its front row, then the English trio has nothing on the current All Black front row - Tialata included.

Sorry Hendo your over hyping the English front row the AB'S front row is easily the strongest.

I will agree vickery and stevens are good but not sheridan.

Sheridan's reputation is built on a whole lot of media hype, what he can throw around a gym and a couple of games against the old powder-puff Australian front row of 05 & 07.

And even that carries little weight these days considering how much the Aussies have improved and what Baxter and co did to them in Nov last year.

There's no doubt the guy is immensely strong and he must do some impressive things at training and the domestic game to even get guys like Craig Dowd almost orgasmic. But at test level, or at least against the All Blacks, he's yet to show what all the fuss is about.

gotta agree with kiwiKid and 40/20 bout Sheridan. All the hype of benching 180kgs doesnt count as jack in a scrummaging if you dont have good to perfect technique. i've seen sheridan a couple times and his back tends to curve when under pressure. u watch hayman and woodcock and no matter how much pressure they're under they're straight as a table

i will agree though that tialata is the weak link in the ABs front row but then tialata's performed a lot better than I've seen seen sheridan scrummage
